Functional Nanomaterials: Advances in Gas Sensing Technologies

Dear Authors,
I am pleased to invite you to submit a book chapter for the upcoming book “Functional Nanomaterials: Advances in Gas Sensing Technologies” which will be published by Springer, U.K. 
We would like to invite you to contribute one chapter if it is possible.
This book intends to provide the reader with a comprehensive overview of the current state-of-the-art in oxide nanostructures, carbon nanostructures and 2D materials fabrication, mimic of sensing mechanism and applications in gas sensors. It will focus on sensing mechanisms, novel synthesis approaches, and various innovative characterization techniques, different approaches to surface functionalization, strengths and limitations of these materials along with their different properties. Additionally, it will address the issues to enhance the sensitivity and selectivity towards target gases using these nanostructures. The topics covered in the book are of vital importance in a wide range of modern and emerging nanotechnologies employed or to be employed in most industries, academics, healthcare, food, environment, and research institutes, and consequently have a great impact on our society. The main objective of the book is to provide the reader with a basic understanding of recent advancements on nanostructured material-based gas sensors. The adopted subject hugely enables impact on solving the near future challenges in the sensor devices for environmental monitoring. In this book, we bring together numerous experts in the field of gas sensors on novel materials to address fundamental issues prevailing in this thematic domain.

Welcome - about us

Welcome! Nanopaprika was cooked up by Hungarian chemistry PhD student in 2007. The main idea was to create something more personal than the other nano networks already on the Internet. Community is open to everyone from post-doctorial researchers and professors to students everywhere.

There is only one important assumption: you have to be interested in nano!

Nanopaprika is always looking for new partners, if you have any idea, contact me at
